Hi Si,
as a little late follower I can say it is going superbly and your builds provide a great learning resource.
I have few kits in the 1/350 scale but dare not to start them yet since I consider myself still a beginner in all this...
Watching this build closely.

Such clean and crisp moldings: if only all ships kits were this good

Hi Rade,

welcome aboard, glad to have you along. Thanks for your kind comment. I have learned a lot posting my builds on this site, gave me the confidence to tackle the more complex vessels.

Cheers

Agree with you there mate, have to say I am impressed with what their recent releases, and some interesting subjects too.

All looking very familiar
Great job so far, and you're right about the etched yards. I think I reattached them once or twice, especially while trying to rig them!

Thanks Michael,

No doubt I will be doing the same.

It is, so far, a stunning kit to build.

Agree with that. It was the most straightforward build I have ever done.

Hi Michael,

I must say I am very impressed with what Hobby Boss are doing at the moment, a good level of detail, a good amount of etch, not a vast a mount of microscopic parts, and some of the more recent kits, (Alaska & Seydlitz) even include maindeck railings.

Don't tell Mrs Duster, but I also picked up the Seydlitz at Telford,

Cheers

Si

In and watching you here as well, Si!

You are doing a nice and fast job, very special looking ships those sisters, the French had a very uncommon design.
Looking forward to see her grow!

Cheers,
Jan

Thanks Jan,

They are unusual, that does seem to be a quirk of French design.

Good to see you back on the board again mate, looking forward to some progress on the Hood.

Cheers
